There's a funny Wing Commander mention in the Neverwinter Night Vault about Scott Greig that Edward Pang found. It's from the profile of one of the people working on the new AD&D game Neverwinter Nights. You can find the full page here.
I have a university comp-sci degree and spent the next 4 years playing video games, uh I mean writing data base tools. A former co-worker of mine, told me about these medical doctors that were trying to make video games in their basement. I met them, and showed them the Wing Commander models that I had made (ah, sad but true). They figured that anyone with this little of a life would be a perfect employee, so they offered to pay me for a few months. We put together a demo for what was eventually going to be Baldur's Gate, got a contract from Interplay and that is how I got into the game industry.
